A chocolate bar with bacon in it!!!!
|Sadly, the bear did not receive any of the chocolate (that's why he looks so sad). Hey, we don't know if bears are like dogs and can't have chocolate. We figured we would rather be safe than sorry. ;)|
I chose the dark chocolate and Binderclips selected the milk chocolate bar to try. We decided to get the .5 oz. sizes, just in case we didn't like them. Plus, the .5 oz. costs $2.50, while the 3 oz. costs $7.50.
Here's my review of the Mo's Dark Bacon Bar:
It was definitely rich dark chocolate that wasn't too bitter, very good. Since it's a smaller .5 oz size bar it's a little brittle, so I would recommend not wearing light clothes when doing your tasting (unlike me). The bacon pieces were small and softer than I expected. I like my bacon crunchy, however I'm not sure how crunchy bacon could be accomplished in a chocolate bar, honestly. Overall, it was ok. I think I would try some of the other options they have because the chocolate itself was good, however the dark chocolate bacon bar was nothing to write home about in my opinion.
Here's Binderclips review of the Mo's Bacon Bar:
Milk chocolate = good
bacon bits = ok
Would have rather had chocolate covered bacon

I'm not sure if Whole Foods has all of these, however I'm thinking I might be up for trying some of them. Namely, the Woolloomooloo (say that 5 times real fast), Barcelona, Goji, and Matcha. Any of you tried any of these? If so, I would love to hear how they are.
Also, they do have truffles as well as many other yummy treats. Let me know if you've tried any of them.
